Thanks to airbrushing and Instagram ‘celebrities’, the quest for perfect skin seems to have become even more unattainable. Everyone’s skin seems to be blemish free, and open pores are buffed into oblivion with the help of re-touching. While we can’t promise to give you skin like an Instagram model, we can suggest several products which will do the next best thing and improve the appearance of open pores. Here are five of our favourites:
One of the best things about this primer is that it’s suitable for all skin types, as it’s lightweight, non-greasy and moisturising. It refines pores and mattifies excess shine, as well as containing an microencapsulated iron oxide complex which provides a light, neutral tint coverage. It can be used under make up or on its own and will drastically blur imperfections.
This cleansing milk is designed to leave your face perfectly clean, getting rid of all traces of daily dirt and make up. It harnesses the power of green tea, which helps to detoxify the skin and tighten the pores, giving you complexion a more refined look. It contains moisturising sweet almond oil so that your face feels nourished, as well as neroli oil, which smells heavenly!
This lotion from Jan Marini uses acids to resurface the skin, which will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, redness, acne scarring, large pores and uneven texture. It will address the appearance of multiple skin concerns including acne, pigmentation, rosacea and fine lines and wrinkles, and skin texture will appear more refined and follicle size will appear diminished.
Serums are a powerful ally against many skin issues and this resurfacing serum is perfect in the fight against large pores. It contains alpha hydroxy acids, selastin and patented tri-enzyme technology which smooth the skin’s surface and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s clinically proven to reduce large pores and contains no parabens of other nasties.
We love the uniqueness of this product, which starts as a powder and activates on contact with water, providing triple-action adsorption along with physical and chemical exfoliation, removing harmful impurities from pollutants that have built up on skin throughout the day. As well as removing dirt from deep with pores, it resurfaces the skin and buffs the surface, leaving your complexion looking smoothed.
